What do "put down 12" and "*** stuck in the can" mean? 50 cent lyrics.?

"I know who givin me all this cash, just to put down twelve to get in yo' ***"

"I ain't never got a ***** *** stuck in the can"

    I would guess it means to lay down a dozen tracks for an album/CD, and he never made anything that got shelved, ie 'stuck in the can' - a reference to movies that were shot on film that was stored in metal cans - and then never shown.

    Put Down 12 = in prison for a 12-year sentence

    Stuck in the can = sent to prison

      Listen to whole song
      'stuck in the can" is definitely about jail
      This two lines are not back to back in the song.
      The lay down 12 is not followed by "stuck in the can"
